Courtney Yates, whom millions know from Survivor, has been one of my models and besties in NYC after we met at a protest in 2016. We share a love for skeletons, politics, the stars, and philosophy. A couple of years ago we did a series in her home to promote her work as a physical therapist. True story: she literally saved my back. Years ago I was hit by an SUV and had suffered from back problems for years as a result. She calmly said “I can fix it.” And she did, using cupping and massage. I am so grateful to this amazing woman for giving me back my full mobility and proud to call her my friend.
